If ever there was a magical love story this is it, from a dirty bar bathroom, to the first I love you, to break ups about babies, reconciliations, to moving in together, to Airports and pregnancies and weddings. Callie Torres and Arizona Robbins are a match made in heaven, fire and ice both destined to be together. Arizona first interacted with Callie at Joe’s the famous watering house of the Surgeons of SGMW, finding her in a bathroom she proceeded to tell Callie about all the people lining up for her and ended it with a simple kiss and that folks is the start of who will all call Calzona.
Their relationship started off slowly and innocently, with stolen kisses and supportive words they moved at a pace which allowed them to get to know each other properly. Arizona got a glimpse of what Callie’s family was like when she was introduced to Callie’s father, who was firmly against them this in turn caused Callie’s father to cut her off financially and emotionally and eventually led to Calzona’s first argument, Arizona thinking that Callie wasn’t into her giving her famous line of “So the ER is fun but I’m not?, you can get enough of me…I mean is that what you are saying, do you just want to end this? Because…because there are woman lining up for me I’m hot..and if you want you should have the guts to say so, I can take it, maybe this was just a fling that’s run it’s course..maybe it’s over”, but Arizona was determined to not give up pursuing Callie later in the episode where it was revealed the reason why Callie had been distant which in turn lead to their first time being intimate together.
After this their relationship progressed further and further, we got to see Arizona standing up to Callie’s father giving him her good man in a storm speech which brought a lot of fans to tears. Then in Season 6, episode 8 after an Arizona centric episode it ended with Arizona and Callie declaring their love for one another. After this their relationship continued to blossom with love and humour, towards the end of the Season their relationship was tested when it was revealed that Callie wanted children and Arizona did not, unfortunately neither was willing to budge and Callie and Arizona split up, luckily for Calzona fan’s the two reunited in the Season finale with both willing to give up their dreams if it meant they could be with each other.
Season 7 was a hell of a journey for our two woman, the season started off with a happy and in love Callie and Arizona, we got the sweet proposal from Callie to Arizona about moving in and sharing a blow dryer and a dresser to minor arguments about Mark and paint colours. Then Callie and Arizona’s world got turned upside down when Arizona won the Carter Madison Grant. Both of them ready to go to Africa for 3 years at the airport moments before their flight boarded, Arizona decided she didn’t want to go to Africa with Callie, Callie admitted to not wanting to go but wanting to be with Arizona but Arizona forged ahead and went without her leaving fans around the world devastated with her parting line to Callie “We are standing in the middle of the airport screaming at each other, we’re already over”.
We next see Arizona in 7.10 appearing at the end of the episode outside Callie’s door where she tries and fails to win Callie back earning her a door to the face. For the next few episodes our girls are apart, Arizona tries and fails on several occasions to win Callie over but in 7.12, Arizona corners Callie in an elevator and proceeds to tell her that she loves her and all she wants is another chance to which Callie replies, “You want another chance…….Today I found out that I’m pregnant….with Mark’s baby, how about now?”
Arizona decides to be all in because of her love for Callie and the two plus Mark embark on a new journey together culminating in the famous Musical Episode where Callie and Arizona arrive at the hospital after being in a car accident. This episode in many ways is supposed to solidify what Callie and Arizona have, through music and actions we see Callie fight to come back to Arizona and her newly born child, after a lot of tears and heartbreaking moments, from the time that Callie places her hand on Arizona’s in the Gallery we see that Callie has chosen Arizona and this is confirmed as she wakes up and accepts Arizona’s marriage proposal.
The rest of the Season we see these two woman struggle and come to terms with the accident and their new daughter and their upcoming marriage and family problems. In White Wedding Callie and Arizona are finally married in a beautiful ceremony where they promise to spend their lives together, and begin the next chapter in their lives.
